Stoney Creek Beach is one of the smallest beaches in Connecticut. This beach offers a nearby grassy/park area, a gazebo, and a view of boats entering and exiting the nearby marina. Sand has minimal debris mixed in the sand with a thin seaweed band left over from high-tide. The slope to the water is gradual, and the waves are small due to Long Island Sound.
